PODCAST – Friday, February 26: Fun Fact Friday; The Week In Flubbles; Is Chaz In A McDonald’s Commercial?

The flubble montage. A collection of all the mistakes made for the week. A “flubble” is a combo of a flub and a mumble, which sometimes unintentionally creates a new word. (0:00)

Dumb Ass News – A pastor is spreading the spirit of the Lord, through his farts. Seriously. During the break, Chaz and AJ called Pat from CT Park Shame, who is able to fart on command, so he can “bless” them. (7:43)

The Tribe has been calling and emailing for weeks about a commercial they believe Chaz voiced. During Fun Fact Friday, Chaz debunked that, and re-enacted the spot to prove his point. It may have back-fired. (14:29)

More Fun Fact Friday, with calls from David Letterman, Matthew McConaughey, and John Travolta. (21:29)

Boss Keith’s Top 5 this week focused on the things that he thought Chaz and AJ could have done differently. Of course, that meant criticizing their choices for best movie endings, and how the score is calculated in a game. (33:26)
